Syria 1: Damascus - Carolynn-in-Dubai
The water feature in the garden of the National Museum.  We sat and had a coffee and enjoyed the atmosphere after a long morning in the museum.  The highlight of the museum is a reconstructed synagogue which was moved section by section (not unlike Abu Simbel) to the museum.  Its unique in that it has frescos showing human figures, depiction of the human form in Talmadic tradition is banned.
